Hi, Blog Followers! Here is this week's Techie Tuesday which leads you to 66.6% done with the year point with the end of trimester 2. Woot! You can see all of my weekly slides and access all of the links by clicking on the slide below and then using the arrows to scroll through the other slides in the deck.


I aim to be as easily accessible as possible so I can help as many folks as I can. With that in mind, you can make an appointment with me right on my website, which is also easy to remember because it's just SimmonsClassroom.com. I've been booking up a lot of co-teaching sessions lately, so it's best to schedule sessions in advance to ensure I'm available when you need me.

Hi, Blog Followers! Here is this week's Techie Tuesday complete with a shout out to a team I've been working with a lot lately. You can see all of my weekly slides and access all of the links by clicking on the slide below and then using the arrows to scroll through the other slides in the deck.


I aim to be as easily accessible as possible so I can help as many folks as I can. With that in mind, you can make an appointment with me right on my website, which is also easy to remember because it's just SimmonsClassroom.com. If you see a slot open, you can grab it! I've gone back and forth between the MS and HS almost 10 times in a day before. I love to get my steps in! You can book me for anywhere from 15 minutes to the entire day as long as I have an opening in my calendar.
